THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE 

Since us inception in 1916, the National Park Service has been 
dedicated to the preservation and management of our country's 

unique natural, historical, and recreational areas. The National 
Park System encompasses 337 separate areas in the United 
States. Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Included are 
outstanding sites of natural beaut) and grandeur, properties 
preserved to reflect the historical development of the United 
States and the prehistoric civilizations on the North American 
continent, and recreational sites and facilities that serve the 
need for relaxing activity, leisure, and inspiration. 

Besides the headquarters office in Washington. D.C.. there are 
10 regional offices, a service center in Denver, Colo., and an 
interpretive design center in Harpers Ferry, W. Va. The National 
Park Service is a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Interior, 
and should not be confused with the Forest Service, which is a 
bureau of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

For information on permanent employment in the National 
Park Service, obtain a brochure from any of its regional offices. 
See the addresses of regional offices on page 13. 



SEASONAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES 

Each year millions of people visit the areas of the National Park 
System. To meet the needs of these visitors, the National Park 
Service augments its permanent work force with people hired 
on a seasonal basis. 

Besides assisting the permanent staff during periods of peak 
activity, seasonal employment introduces young people to the 
professional opportunities which the National Park Service 
offers. 

These jobs are difficult to get because: (1) Applicants far 
outnumber the positions available, particularly at larger, well- 
known parks; (2) Most positions are filled by people returning 
from previous seasonal employment with the National Park 
Service; and (3) Office of Personnel Management regulations 
require that veterans be given preference among qualified 
applicants. 

Therefore, summer employment opportunities are 
EXTREMELY LIMITED AND COMPETITIVE. Only those 
applicants who meet the appropriate requirements and all the 
conditions of employment described in this booklet will receive 
consideration. 



GENERAL INFORMATION 

The initial grade level for seasonal positions in the National 
Park Service ranges from GS-2 for clerical and park aid 
positions to GS-4 for technician and park ranger positions. 
Check with any federal installation or Office of Personnel 
Management office for current salary information for these 
grades. Prevailing local wage rates govern maintenance and 
crafts positions. 

The standard workweek is 40 hours. Additional compensation is 
provided for overtime worked. Most seasonal positions require 
irregular hours of work, including Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, 
and evenings. 

Most seasonal technicians, aids, and rangers are required to 
wear the official uniform. Specific uniform requirements and 
ordering information are contained in the employment package 
forwarded to successful candidates. An allowance authorization, 
which covers partial expenses, is issued before entry on duty. 

No positions discussed in this booklet require teams (such as 
husband and wife), although a few team positions may be 
available. For further information, contact the park area in 
which you desire employment. 

Address specific questions about area living conditions and 
similar matters to the park or office where you desire 
employment. 



EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY 

You will be considered without regard to race, color, religion, 
age, sex, marital status, non-disqualifying handicap, political 
affiliation, or other non-merit factors. However, you must be a 
United States citizen. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR PARK AIDS/ 
TECHNICIANS/RANGERS 

Seasonal positions that involve law enforcement or public safety 
duties generally are restricted to persons at least 21 years of age. 
Because many seasonal positions require frequent or occasional 
strenuous activity, a medical examination may be required, at 
the applicant's expense, before appointment. 

For Seasonal Technician, Aid, and Ranger positions you must 
be in excellent physical condition and may be required to have a 
valid driver's license. You must be at least 18 years of age by 
May 13 to gain consideration for a summer job. You should 
have vision correctable to 20/30 (Snellen) in each eye. However, 
if your vision is less than 20/30 in one eye, you can be 
considered if the other tests 20/20 with or without glasses. Some 
severe physical disabilities may disqualify an applicant if the 
condition interferes with the job's performance requirements. 

AREA OF CONSIDERATION 

Each applicant may be considered for TWO SEPARATE PARK 
AREAS AND FOR TWO TYPES OF JOBS IN EACH OF THE 
TWO PARKS, NATIONWIDE. 

SUMMER EMPLOYMENT FOR CLERICAL JOBS 

Applicants for summer clerical jobs— typist, stenographer, 
information receptionist, office machine operator, or adminis- 
trative clerk — may submit an application (S.F. 171) to the 
National Park Service Region or Office where they wish consid- 
eration. Typists and stenographers may provide proof that they 
have the required skills. This may be established by a certificate 
of proficiency based on a performance test administered by a 
public, parochial, or properly accredited private high school; or 
by a business, commercial, or secretarial school; or by a college 
or junior college; or by a school approved by the Veterans 
Administration for educating veterans and their dependents; or 
by a state or local employment service office. 

Most summer clerical positions are located in the Washington 
(headquarters) Office. Applications will be accepted according 
to the filing dates specified in the Office of Personnel Manage- 
ment's Summer Job Announcement No. 414. There is no written 
test for summer clerical positions.

employment without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, 
marital status, non-disqualifying handicap, national origin,

Concessioners normally pay the minimum wage established by 
the state the facility is located in. Although some pay a small 
bonus at the end of the season, they do not pay or make 
arrangements for transportation to and from the parks. 

The National Park Service does not have application forms for 
concessioner employment. For applications and information 
about job openings, salaries, and working and living conditions, 
write to the concessioner. Names and addresses of concessioners 
are listed here under the name of the corresponding park. Apply 
soon after the first of the year. Only concessioners hiring 
substantial seasonal staff are listed.

As the nation's principal conservation agency, the Department 
of the Interior has responsibility for most of our nationally 
owned public lands and natural resources. This includes fostering 
the wisest use of our land and water resources, protecting our 
fish and wildlife, preserving the environmental and cultural 
values of our national parks and historical places, and providing 
for the enjoyment of life through outdoor recreation. The 
Department assesses our energy and mineral resources and 
works to assure that their development is in the best interest of 
all our people. The Department also has a major responsibility 
for American Indian reservation communities and for people 
who live in Island Territories under U.S. administration.
